Great purchase!

My initial reason for trying this app out was because I was worried my nursing son might not be getting enough to eat. I wanted to track his wet diapers. Since I will be going back to work soon, I wanted to figure out his sleeping and eating schedule, as well.

I'm a little compulsive when it comes to record keeping and list-making, so it quickly progressed to my tracking his every activity and this app made it so easy to do!

I love knowing at a glance how many wet or soiled diapers my son has had, or how much sleep he's gotten. This app is also very helpful in remembering when he last slept or ate.

Perhaps one of the best things about this app is the ability to track and record how much breast milk I pumped and when I pumped it. I label these "bottles" with the date and time so when I feed the expressed breast milk to my son, I simply choose the corresponding label.

There are many more things to track, such as milestones and growth, as well as bath time and tummy time. If you are in to details, (like I am,) this app makes keeping records a cinch! Without it, I doubt I would remember half as much.

Took getting used to but worth every second!

This app took some getting used to but it's worth it, I confess I don't use the reminders as most of it is common sense. The way the app collates the data is extremely helpful when starting sleep training or figuring out if your baby has eaten enough that day.... When our doctors ask us questions I can always refer to the app since I can no longer trust my memory. The adjustability in the "detail" sections of each category is also extremely helpful. This app was very well designed, there is sincerely nothing more I wish it did....except maybe take care of the baby while I napped!

So helpful!

This app is very helpful with keeping track of everything (especially in the middle of the night) from diapers to feeding. As a nursing mom, it helps to remember which side I last nursed, again extremely helpful at night! I also like how it you to keep track of number of wet diapers and times the baby ate, which my pediatrician always asks at visits. It also logs and keeps track of everything and predicts of eating, sleeping, and diapers. While I don't use that to go by, it is always iterating when it is right on time! This is my second child, and I also used and loved it with our first.
